5 Frequently Asked Questions about Microdermabrasion

What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical, non-invasive, highly controlled method of skin resurfacing that’s designed to refresh aging skin and tackle a wide variety of common concerns such as fine lines and wrinkles. At Medical Cosmetics, we’re proud to be the leading microdermabrasion clinic in Nottingham, offering this efficient and effective contemporary alternative to traditional methods like skin peels and laser treatments.

Microdermabrasion is a safe procedure, and works by gently exfoliating the outer layers of skin with crystals to remove dead cells and reduce thickness. The treatment process is quick and simple, providing instant results for a smoother, younger-looking appearance.

At our leading microdermabrasion clinic in Nottingham, we use Crystal Clear microdermabrasion; the market leader in microdermabrasion and one of the most effective systems used throughout the world. Crystal Clear has been used by top clinics for more than 25 years with excellent results and is known for being one of the more gentle yet highly effective systems. Using Crystal Clear, we have complete peace of mind that our microdermabrasions are safe, with great results and minimal side effects.

What happens during the treatment?
As the leading microdermabrasion clinic in Nottingham, our experienced team will support you every step of the way. Following a full consultation to explain the procedure, the effects, and the appropriate aftercare, your face will be cleansed before your practitioner gently passes the wand across the treatment area. This allows the abrasive crystals to be distributed onto the skin’s surface with speed, gently removing the epidermal cells layer by layer. Dead cells are disposed of via the vacuum. This gentle vacuum action also gives an immediate lifting effect on tired muscles and stimulates the blood supply to the skin’s surface. This helps promote new collagen and elastin formation, resulting in a fresh, youthful look, even on dull or aging skin types.
How quickly will I see results?
Results can be seen instantly. After treatment, the skin will appear rejuvenated, but a small
number of patients will experience slight redness, lasting for around 15-20 minutes.
How long do the effects last?
The effects of an initial microdermabrasion treatment can last for several weeks. However, the longer the treatment course, the longer you can enjoy the benefits.
